Note: Related Configurations

See ingres.array_index_start in Runtime Configuration

Parameters

result

The query result identifier

index

index is the field whose type will be retrieved.

The possible values of index depend upon the value of ingres.array_index_start. If ingres.array_index_start is 1 (the default) then index must be between 1 and the value returned by ingres_num_fields(). If ingres.array_index_start is 0 then index must be between 0 and ingres_num_fields() - 1.

Return Values

ingres_field_type() returns the type of a field in a query result or FALSE on failure. Examples of types returned are IIAPI_BYTE_TYPE, IIAPI_CHA_TYPE, IIAPI_DTE_TYPE, IIAPI_FLT_TYPE, IIAPI_INT_TYPE, IIAPI_VCH_TYPE. Some of these types can map to more than one SQL type depending on the length of the field (see ingres_field_length()). For example IIAPI_FLT_TYPE can be a float4 or a float8. For detailed information, see the Ingres OpenAPI User Guide, Appendix "Data Types" in the Ingres documentation.
